Check out Myna Wallin’s poem “Transcendence” in the September 2009 issue of Futureale (p 32-33), and a lovely photo, too!

Myna’s book of short stories, Confessions of a Reluctant Cougar, is forthcoming spring 2011.

Sex is casual, but conversation is a serious matter in the outrageous adventures of this contemporary cougar.

In Myna Wallin’s second book, a reluctant cougar tells all. She feasts on young men of all kinds, in a world where sex isn’t dirty but love is coated in grime. In these raucous short stories, she runs the gauntlet of men, including a Harley-riding bikini salesman, a semiotics professor, a foot fetishist, a jaded brand consultant, a homeless man, and a bisexual mime. Written with Wallin’s signature wit, this semiotics of dating is given a postmodern twist.

MYNA WALLIN is an author and editor in Toronto. She is also an organizer and host of the Art Bar Poetry Series. She has her Masters degree in English Literature from U of T. Her first full-length poetry collection, A Thousand Profane Pieces, was published in 2006 by Tightrope Books.
